SonarQube Documentation for 8.9 LTS is wrong for MSSQL JDBC auth driver

Must-share information (formatted with Markdown):

  • latest 8.9 version available to download
  • how is SonarQube deployed: ZIP
  • what are you trying to achieve: Upgrade from 8.5 to 8.9 LTS
  • what have you tried so far to achieve this: Unzip and configure

Do not share screenshots of logs – share the text itself (bonus points for being well-formatted)!

Main error “java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no mssql-jdbc_auth-9.2.0.x64”

I downloaded the exact version provided in the documentation, but it appears the link is going to 11 and not 9. Suggest someone update the documentation to fix the bad link here under the MS SQL steps Install the server It shows

Integrated security

To use integrated security:

  1. Download the Microsoft SQL JDBC Auth 11.2.0 package and copy mssql-jdbc_auth-11.2.0.x64.dll to any folder in your path.

I assume someone went through and updated the documents but accidently updated 8.9.


Welcome to the community!

In fact, 8.9 is past EOL, and the documentation version you have is also out of date. The latest version is 10.1 (docs), and the current LTS is 9.9.1 (docs). You can download them from the downloads page.

Thank you, the point I was making is the documentation was wrong. It says 9.2, which is the version needed for 8.9 LTS, but it links to 11.0, which is wrong.

I’m just providing that here for others that run into this issue going from pre-8.9 LTS. that have to go through each LTS version to get to the newest version like we did.

EDIT: To anyone coming later, the solution is in the original message above. This was more of a “please update your documentation” ticket. I’m going to mark this closed since the LINK is correct now.

EDIT: I went and checked, someone updated the link to correct the issue, but they didn’t update the text next to the link.
